Chelsea target Nikola Maksimovic is set to leave his current club Torino after manager Sinisa Mihajlovic said the defender was ‘dead’ to him.

The manager is very frustrated with the defender as the player have decided to leave the club despite Mihajlovic is not keen to sell him.

The 24-year old Serbian international is heavily linked with Chelsea as the Blues see him as a potential successor to John Terry for the upcoming seasons. However, the defender has also attracted interest from other clubs like Napoli and West Ham United.

The Blues have considered him as an alternative if Kalidou Koulibaly’s deal collapses. However, Napoli are also looking to sign the defender as Blues have upped their interest in Koulibaly which could see the Senegal international leave the club for Stamford Bridge by the end of the current transfer window.

Koulibaly could also leave Napoli to Stamford Bridge if the Italian club lands the Serbian defender. The Blues have already made a massive £50million bid to sign him but Napoli slapped a £60million price tag.

The signing of Maksimovic would let Napoli sell Koulibaly as Blues are set to sign one of the two defenders before the transfer window closes this Wednesday.

Maksimovic has been training alone away from the squad for last two weeks and when asked about his situation manager Sinisa Mihajlovic said: “I haven’t heard from him since then.

“As far as I am concerned, Maksimovic is dead to me.”
